The long and the short of it is that some apps that use WebKit, whether locally
running in a WebView or online via a browser (such as a canvas-based,
platform-independent CAD app), will need to have 1cm in CSS == 1cm on the
output screen/printer/plotter. Anything that is the wrong scale will be
laughably unacceptable in a professional environment.

Variable DPI *has* to be supported for HTML-based applications, and Safari will
set it to 96.0 for browsing the public internet, which is fine. My only concern
is that when implemented, this ability will not be exposed in the browser as a
user feature (like it is in Mac IE). That would be disappointing.
